You brought me way back to a dream I had in my early 20s; I’d read “What Color Is Your Parachute?” and inside was this wonderful chart of “Transferrable skills”. I learned how your skills can be used in different industries for unexpected tasks, etc and it was eye opening. I remember taking copious notes on an idea I had for a “skills based” program that would assess people’s transferrable skills and help them find jobs or start businesses based upon the skillsets that they had or were capable up in order to maximize their capabilities and presumably their happiness while contributing to society and themselves.

You see for me, and this is something I dare not say too often because it is anathama for too many;
Ultimately, I do not care whether the means of production are government owned, community owned, individually owned, whether a society is communist, capitalist, socialist;
I just want it to be just and fair, allowing people to have the freedom to be who they are within reason; have amble opportunity – with the necessary societal support – to take whatever internal drive there is and be able to find or create a space in a larger society.
